Tetsu wakizashi detail.png

A tetsu wakizashi is an untradeable level 85 Attack off-hand melee weapon made in the Player-owned ports minigame. It is the off-hand counterpart to the tetsu katana. It can be made in a port workshop using 50 plate, 25 pearls and 1 tengu tsuba, requiring 92 Smithing (non-boostable) and all four parts of the "tetsu swords" eastern scroll. Making one grants 15,000 Smithing and 2,500 Crafting experience.

The tetsu wakizashi will degrade after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a player-owned house.

A full repair costs:

It can also be upgraded to Elite tetsu wakizashi using a Tetsu sword upgrade kit and 5 plate.

Upon death, this item will appear under your gravestone and if killed in wilderness it will turn into 1,250,000 coins for the killing player regardless of charge.

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The base repair cost of the Tetsu wakizashi when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 1,250,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house, or a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 'Wakizashi' (脇差) means 'short sword' in Japanese.
  • The primary usage of wakizashi in the real world is slashing, not stabbing.
